"Cleaver" sent to Russian penal colony

Mon 18 Aug 2014 In: International News

Maxim 'Cleaver' Martsinkevich A gay-hating Russian Neo-Nazi who filmed gay men being assaulted and humiliated, driving at least one to later commit suicide, has been sent to a Russian penal colony for five years. However the sentence is for racism and extremism, not for his treatment of gay men. Maxim 'Cleaver' Martsinkevich released a series of videos in his ‘Occupy Pedophilia’ campaign showing battered gay men being humiliated with sex toys, drinking what he says is urine, painted with a Star of David and being made to make false statements that they are paedophiles. Gay teenagers are among those who have been targeted in meetings which are orchestrated in gay chat rooms. One teenager is reported to have since taken his own life. LGBTQ Nation says Martsinkevich has been convicted of inciting and encouraging cases of extremism and sentenced to spend five years in a penal colony. It says videos where he humiliated gay men were not included in the prosecutor’s case against him. Nine other members of “Occupy Paedophilia” are awaiting trial and it appears they will be prosecuted for anti-gay crimes.
